“Some lack of manpower”
Press agency Lusa reports that the Regional Government of Madeira has acknowledged that the tourism sector faces a lack of manpower and is now looking to recruit workers from abroad.
“In April 2022, compared to 2019, we grew by 25% in overnight stays, 22% in guests, 33% in total income and 35% in RePar [revenue per available room]”, said Regional President Miguel Albuquerque, underlining that April was the best month in the archipelago’s 200-year history of tourism. More details of the record month can be found here.
“Everything comes together for the region to benefit from a good summer”, said the Regional President, admitting that there is “some lack of manpower” and pointing as a solution to the hiring of workers abroad, “as is done in all tourist destinations”.
